Abstract

There are two regulatory bodies when it comes to the legal education in Pakistan: the Pakistan Bar Council and the Higher Education Commission. These governing bodies have their own separate set of rules, and their roles are intertwined with each other, this creates dissension about who has the final authority. This conundrum leads to confusion for the universities imparting legal education regarding which rules to comply with, and on top of that they have their own policies and administrative discretion which also at some instances does not comply with the rules laid down by the Higher Education Commission and Pakistan Bar Council. This has left the legal system of Pakistan in shambles, because no sector can progress or develop if the governing authorities are in conflict with each other. There is a need to clearly demarcate the boundaries of both these governing authorities, or at the very least they need to work in unison in order to avoid any confusion or conflict about their authorities
